“Perfect Caribbean vacation”
Reviewed February 26, 2011

I arrived on Bequia via Firefly speed boat from Mustique. It was an exhilarating, adventurous trip, thanks to the very capable boat captain, Garnet. My stay at Firefly Bequia was short but oh so sweet. The rooms are large with exceptional views of the bay, made even more exceptional by the waxing, almost full, moon. Sounds of the frogs and crickets made it feel as if I were far, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Firefly Bequia is truly like a "retreat" hotel with its large, luxurious pool and magical plantation mango orchard, horses, and well behaved, friendly dogs Judy and Ana. The plantation is spacious and beautiful, and Keith, the grounds keeper did a superb job giving us(myself and fellow guests) a fun and informative tour of the different trees and plants. He let us taste the fruits off the trees and even climbed a coconut tree! I cant say enough about the staff. All of them are very friendly, fun and accommodating. The food is excellent, my favorite being the goat curry. Max is a top chef and Donavon is great at the bar and restaurant. Firefly Bequia is located a short distance from the town, near the turtle sanctuary. We met Brother King, at the turtle sanctuary, and thoroughly enjoyed his animated conversation and explanation of what he is doing to help preserve the hawksbill turtles. This place wouldnt be what it is without the tasteful attention to every detail. Thank you Firefly for such good memories.

Looks great, feels better. What a fantasic, secluded venue for a wedding in the caribbean. Excellent, attentive service coupled with some of the most fantastic food we sampled in the many places we visited. The room was of the highest standard - spacious and beautifully arranged with lovely views. The staff did everything they could to make sure the wedding day was perfect, with a lovely intimate ceremony amongst the lemon and lime trees in the plantation. Many thanks to Rodney, Max, Donovan, Dylan and Keith for making our stay so special. Many thanks too to Elizabeth for all the planning and preparation ahead of our stay.

We spent a couple of nights at the Firefly in Bequia over new year. It was the perfect place to arrive and relax for the first couple of days of our holiday. The room/suite was beautiful with everything you could wish for. Very comfortable king size four poster bed with crisp cotton sheets. Lovely double shower and bathroom, plenty of space in the dressing room complete with kettle, tea and coffe, chilled water and fridge.
The cellphone for guest use plus the Ipod loaded with great music is a nice touch.
We really relaxed and was very well looked after by the manager Donovan and his team.
We enjoyed fullboard and the food was delicious with a good winelist. The staff decorated the restaurant for new years eve and managed to create a party atmosphere with only
about 10 dinner guests. The one complaint we have is that the new years eve menu could have been more festive, most places in Bequia and the Caribean serve lobster but we had the normal dinner menu which inluded goat curry! Not exactly what we expected from the
Firefly, a complimentary welcome drink, glass of bubbly would have been a nice touch as all
the guests gathered in the bar for a drink before dinner.
We still wish we could have stayed longer as this really is a get away from it all kind of place.
The Firefly is 10 minutes drive from Port Elizabeth so you will need to hire a car or use a local taxi. The hotel has a great driver, John who is on call most of the time.
The beaches close to the hotel are not among the best on the island and definately not for small children but we highly reccomend Princess Margareth beach with Jacks bar for lunch, super food at good value. The hotel pool is in a lovely setting just down from the restaurant
(unfortunately a little bit worn with half dead plants in pots) but with only four bedrooms
never busy.

We are home but our hearts are still at Firefly Bequia.
---the soft breezes over the fields where the horses are frollicking after a rainstorm the night before
---the sparkling blue waters that greet you every morning when you walk out onto your balcony
---the wonderful staff , Rodney, Donovan, Leslie Anne, Keith and all that attend to your every need and make your stay so perfect and peaceful
---the official greeters and companions for the day if desired, Jude, Ana and Vivi who make you long for your 4 legged friends back home
---the exquisitely detailed rooms where nothing is lacking for your comfort, pleasure and enjoyment
---the private beaches, the peaceful pool, the abundance of radiant flowers, the fruit trees and gardens that provide fresh, organic produce for your gourmet dining pleasure
---relaxing on the veranda overlooking the lushgrounds while enjoying a perfectly prepared tropical drink as the sun sets is good for one's soul
---and then there is the Plantation itself with all it's natural beauty, intriguing history, buildings and nostaglia
Firefly Bequia is a trip back in time with all the conveniences of today ! This is an experience you will never forget and will always want to repeat !
Thank you Liz and Stan. What you have created at Firefly Bequia is magical !

Bequia is the most beautiful island, unspoilt, real Caribbean charm and tranquility.
We had visited one becfore by boat about ten years ago and wanted to return to stay in a hotel but untill recently there has not really been anywhere appropriate to stay. We are not flashy people (Sandy Lane we are not!) but we do want a bit of lux so were delighted when Firefly opened. We stayed last year and have just come back from our second visit. Last year was lovely (or we would not have returned!) but this year was even better. The managment have done a wonderful job on the grounds, pool is clean and sparkling, sevice wonderful and we were made to feel very special and welcome. It is that freindly, warm and genuine attitude that really made it for us. The rooms were spotless and well equipted, wonderful music on the ipods, candles, and flowers. The food is great and the cook most accomodating.
It's nice to return to a place that just feels 'right' and to come back and find it even better than before is fab!! Value for money wise spot on.
Thanks Firefly for a great time. Thanks Bequia for being you!

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Firefly, we were totally impressed by the hospitality and service we received from Rodney, Donovan, Leslie Anne and all the wonderful Firefly team.
We arrived to a warm welcome with fresh fruit punches made from fruit picked from the grounds. Leslie Ann showed us to our rooms which had an adjoining door which was great as we were travelling as a group. The rooms were very spacious with wonderful four poster king sized beds, double indoor outdoor showers, fruit plates, deliciouls crisp sheets and lovely balconies overlooking the sea.
We were on the 'Best of Both Worlds Special' so all meals were included. We did eat out a couple of times and the harbour is great but we prefered the food at Firefly and the service we received there. The menu was varied and feaured lots of delicious local dishes and fresh produce from the palantation.
Yes, we will definately go back, we have fallen in love with the place. Just such warm service and a great atmosphere with out being too over the top.
It was very hot when we were there which my son found a bit hard but he spent most of the day lying by the pool so it wasn't so bad!
Great holiday - thank you!

My husband and I stayed at Firefly Bequia as part of the Best of Both Worlds Special. Booking the vacation was simple. I only had to make arrangements from the States to Barbados. The rest of the small flights and transfers to and from Bequia/Mustique were taken care of by Stan, one of the owners. When booking, I told Liz, the other owner, it was our 2nd Anniversary, The Cotton Anniversary. She not only put us in the "Sea Cotton" room, but gave us a cotton present as part of our welcoming gift!!! Amazing!
When we arrived, we were greeted by two small dogs, Anna and Jude. Being an animal lover, the plantation's dogs, cats, and horses were a major plus for the Firefly in my book.
After drinking our special welcome drink, we made our way to one of the four rooms. Our 2nd floor room was large with a spectacular view of the plantation and beyond. The stone-floored, double shower was even accessible from the porch, perfect for a tropical setting while showering. The king-sized bed was so comfortable and fresh sheets were put on everyday. As a matter of fact, the room was cleaned immaculately everyday and my clothes folded. We also were given a huge welcome basket of fresh fruit, perfect for snacking after a long trip.
The service at the Firefly is perfect. We were given a cell phone to call anyone of the staff for any need or desire. Delan, Donovan, Rodney, and countless others behind the scenes were exceptional and certainly made us want to return in the near future! Donovan personally gave me plantation tour, even though it was off season and the regular plantation man was not available. He told me everything he knew about the fruits and vegetables, and I honestly could not have asked for a better tour guide! We had our own personal taxi man, John. Always on time with a smile on his face, John was anywhere we needed him to be! Thank you, John!!!
The food is excellent at the Firefly. Many of the dishes and garnishes come straight out of the plantation. I also loved my mid-afternoon grilled cheese sandwiches. They were delicious. Some people on Trip Advisor complained about the cost of drinks. I have trouble understanding why. If you go to a big city in the States, many of the drinks run in the $8-15 range. They also are not made from fresh ingredients growing right next to the bar and served by a kick-butt bartender in a stunning environment. It was worth every penny to me.
My husband and I love the Firefly Bequia and can not wait to return!!! Thank you, Firefly staff, for giving us a fantastic and unforgettable anniversary!
On a side note: Bring mosquito repellant. Not the "eco-friendly" kind. You need the "kills everything in its path" straight-up poison kind. These skeeters are relentless and immune to citronella. I made the mistake and was covered head to toe in bites.
